Anyone here installed a Truxx leveling kit on a vehicle? I am considering doing this on my 09 Tahoe.

Leveling kits are pretty easy to install. It usually involves a spacer that mounts on top of the coil over, or a lower strut bracer. I ended going with the Ranch Quicklift on my Tahoe because I was going to change out the struts anyways. Took about 3 hours since all I had to do was remove the stock coil over and stick in the Rancho. Changing out the rear was more of a pain then the front though. Only because of the place of the top shock bolt...

My dad and I installed the one on my 10 silverado, changed the stock rear lift block 1.25" for a 3" to keep a slight rake in the truck along with new rear shocks. Put it on the lift and we were done in roughly an hour! Drove it to the alignment shop the next morning, that's the important part to remember

Also, make sure you get the alignment sheet. I got my truck aligned after throwing in some front kings with 3 inches of lift. Now I found out the brand new tires are wearing weird. Seems the dealer couldn't get it in specs and called it good anyways, and now I am having to do upper control arms and new tires in addition to the lift. So.... Just saying be careful.
